A warm meal

Family and Friends

You have friends and family. They may be far away or close. They are somewhere. You might be making new fiends all the time or have old friends. Everyone has friends even if they don’t think they do. No one is alone.

You’re alive

You can experience life. While it can be difficult at times and might even be a struggle. You are alive. You can experience all that life has to offer. You can explore your interests, learn, and grow. Life is the experience. Good or bad it is all experiences. Pain is only a reminder that there are better experiences out there and pushes you to go after them. As long as you are alive anything is possible.
